This is the perfect breakfast for those chilly morning or if you just want to add a little spice to your life. You may need muscle builder supplements just to lift this dish, it is hearty. But, it is easy and delicious and can be changed to cater to your own tastes if needed. We have used bacon, sausage and ham in it…and we like all 3. However bacon seems to be the all time favorite.
